Happy Halloween!

I don’t usually bother much with the celebrations; when I was a kid growing up near Liverpool Halloween was barely a Thing and it was much more about Bonfire Night a few days later. I guess that stuck with me as an adult.

However, that doesn’t mean I can’t wish everyone else a fun night of trick-or-treating, sweetie-stuffing and general larking about.

And to celebrate the occasion, I have a new Halloween-themed short story available at RoM/Mantic Reads zine today. I first wrote Jack O’Lantern, or at least a shorter and sillier version, for a Torquere Press newsletter many years ago. Last year I dusted it off and rewrote it and it featured in my own newsletter, so if you’re signed up for that you may already have seen it. If not, it’s free and fun but creepy, so what are you waiting for?!

You can find Jack O’Lantern here, and while you’re at it why not stay and have a good poke around the other stories and poems featured in our Halloween season? There are some fantastic pieces on there.
